Visit Bend reports that Bend’s tourism industry continued its historic run through the first month of Fiscal Year 2016. July TRT collections in the City of Bend equaled $1,159,029. This was +34 percent over the previous July (29 percent normalized).
July’s collections also marked Bend’s largest amount ever collected during a single month. Following Bend’s significant increases in TRT collections over the past four years, experiencing a 29 percent year-over-year gain in July (the biggest tourism month of the year), is remarkable.
Of the $1,159,029 collected in July, $702,000 was allocated to the City’s general fund, $410,000 was allocated to tourism promotion and $47,000 was allocated to the Bend Police Department.
